Radisson Rewards

Radisson Rewards is the loyalty scheme for Radisson hotels, which includes these brands: Country Inn, Park Inn, Park Plaza, Radisson, Radisson Blu, Radisson Blu Edwardian, Radisson Collection and Radisson RED.

Our main two-part introduction to Radisson Rewards is here and you can learn more about the program on radissonhotels.com here.

Check out our ‘Hotel Offers’ page here to see what bonus point offers are currently running.

If you need to top up your account, you can buy Radisson Rewards points here.
